I'm absolutely desperate to see these in action one last time. I spent the day at Brize recently in the hope I'd see one doing circuits or at least arrive/depart but no such luck. "Only" a Tristar was around that day.
I think I already know the answer to this, but is there any way of knowing/predicting when they're going to be active? It's a fair drive for me to go there not to see anything again! As with most military movements, it's probably just a case of wait and see.
Years ago I joined the Air Cadets in the hope that one day I'd manage to get myself a ride on one of these VC10's (one thing on the extensive bucket list), now I've had to downgrade that dream to just getting a photo of one!
